Product Description

The Fishman Pro EQ Platinum is premium preamp/DI, dialed-in for just the acoustic player. Fishman packed the Pro EQ Platinum with a rack's worth of serious acoustic processing, all in a stompbox-sized package. The Pro EQ Platinum has a powerful 4-band EQ (with sweepable mids), a phase switch and notch filter for controlling and eliminating feedback, an XLR DI output and much more. You invested a lot in your acoustic guitar, right? Get every ounce of tone from it with the Pro EQ Platinum.

Features
Four-band Acoustic EQ with sweepable mid-range

Feedback-fighting phase switch and notch filter

XLR DI (with ground/lift and pre/post switches) for pro-sound & recording

Smooth Control: Fishman's acoustic compression smoothes out amplified acoustic sound

Exclusive Voltage Doubler Circuit for more clarity and greater dynamics

Easy access battery compartment

Tuner/Send output

Input Gain and Master Volume Controls

Rugged injection-molded case

3-way power from 9V battery, 48V phantom power or AC adapter

Designed in response to requests from players, this versatile preamp/EQ/DI is at home everywhere from local open mic nights to major festival stages. With its simple yet precise controls, you can quickly dial in the natural acoustic sound you're looking for; loud, clear and feedback free.

The Pro-EQ Platinum's four-band equalizer is modeled after Fishman's gig-proven Prefix Plus onboard preamp, with sliders that are assigned to just the right frequencies for acoustic equalization. A semi-parametric midrange control employs a "constant Q" filter for more precise and consistent tone adjustments. Also borrowed from the Prefix design are feedback fighting phase and notch controls.

The Pro-EQ Platinum features the exclusive "Voltage Doubler" technology, which improves both the dynamics and clarity of any pickup. Another innovation utilized in the Platinum is the Smooth acoustic compression circuit. This control removes the harsh percussive edge from your amplified sound when you play hard.

Sound engineers will appreciate the Pro-EQ Platinum's pro-audio features which include a balanced XLR out, an XLR pre/post EQ switch, plus optional 48-Volt phantom power operation. This means no more batteries or wall warts if your mixer has phantom power. Unique to the Pro-EQ Platinum is a hum-killing ground lift switch that (unlike other acoustic preamp/DI's) works even when phantom power is applied to the preamp. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fishman products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (46 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Finally--a Great Sounding Acoustic Electric Sound!"
Sound: I've been searching high and low for a setup that will make a plugged-in acoustic sound acoustic--THIS IS IT! Sounds better than the onboard piezo/mic Fishman I had on my Rainsong. I use it on a non-electric Rainsong DR1100 with a Fishman passive humbucker soundhole pickup and I can get anything from sweet, warm rhythm sounds to crisp sounding finger picking without any harshness. This combo definitely sounds better than any piezo under saddle pickups I've ever heard ...wonder what the Mexico City guy had his hooked up to? Feature: Some reverb and/or chorus would make this a 12... Ease of Use: Very straightforward...especially if you read the User's Guide! Quality: Injection molded plastic top, metal case bottom. Definitely tough enough Value: Definitely worth the price! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use it. Overall: If lost or stolen, I would definitely buy another one.
Style of Music: Folk, Country, Blue, Jazz, Etc., Rock
